Of Gossip frontman Kellin Quinn had the following to say:

“We finally captured the live experience with Bendeth. We have the production, but there’s a rawness that comes through. Musically, I feel like it’s the first Sirens record that sounds specifically like us. We took chances, experimented, and continued to do what we do best: create art. It’s something new. It has an authentic sound that we’ve been working towards all this time.”

It felt like a natural one, as well.  This is a new chapter for us and the live shows will reflect that.

Hollywood Undead Announce New Album

Having just released a brand new single titled California Dreaming off of this upcoming album; Five, Hollywood Undead are back. Full of snappy quips and guitar riffs ready to head bang to, this first track is kicking the album cycle off well. Check out California Dreaming below:

“It dissects both sides of California. You’ve got the glitz, glamour, sun, and surf. Then, you’ve got the super fucked side of people not being able to afford rent, celebrities being assholes, and that fake façade. We wanted to do a heavy song with a Red Hot Chili Peppers-esque chorus. It’s an old school vibe explored in a new way.” –  J-Dog

“We’re five brothers, and this is our fifth record. Nothing gets to the essence of the music like this number does. Numerology has a lot of power. When we said Five, it just made sense. The fact that we could all agree on one word codifies who we are. It also nods back to ‘No. 5’ from our first album, because it was our fifth song. Moreover, it hints at this secret society of fans supporting us for the past decade. The number is significant, and this is a significant moment for us.” – Johnny 3 Tears
